This smells nice but it is a skin irritant. I used 1/3 of the recommended dilution on their website, but still it dried out my skin and made it start peeling after just a couple washes (I mixed it with Dr Bronner's baby sensitive liquid castile soap). Don't use if you have sensitive skin. Should be noted too that on the label it does say it's a skin irritant so I'm not sure why it's advertised for dilution with soaps.

Wow!! This is my first time ever purchasing Mandarin EO and I will never be without it again. It is so relaxing, yet uplifting (a paradoxical thing about many of the citrus EOs...they tend to relax without making you feel like you're ready for bed). It really enhances clarity as well. Since this is the first time I have ever purchased Mandarin EO, I can't compare this one to other brands but Aura Cacia has not let me down yet and this one really does seem like a winner and a keeper. I don't think I'll bother to stray from Aura Cacia for this one. I really wouldn't want to be disappointed and waste the money on other potentially inferior products. Thank you Aura Cacia and thank you Well.ca!!!

Excellent oil! The effects on stretch -arks and other ble-ishes were apparent after only a few days of rubbing it in. I have been using frankincense and and rose-ary oil in coconut oil carrier, and the orange oil really gave it a boost in effectiveness. I use it on -y face as well as -y body. Very fragrant though, so I use it before bed, not during the day when Id s-ell like an orange vendor stand. I love the s-ell though. Delicious!
